Wide Bay Burnett Invasive Species Committee


WBBROC’s Invasive Species Advisory Committee has been established to provide advice to WBBROC on actions that encourage the proactive management of invasive species within the Wide Bay Burnett Region.

 

This includes both invasive species of plants (e.g. declared weeds such as giant rat’s tail), as well as invasive animals (e.g. wild dogs and feral pigs).  Local collaboration will be encouraged in all aspects of dealing with invasive species.

 

The committee is also facilitating the development of a Wide Bay Burnett Regional Biosecurity Strategy for invasive pests and to coordinate the implementation of locally developed and managed Biosecurity Plans.

 

The committee will consult with industry, the private sector and all levels of Government to facilitate the provision of best practice invasive species management within the Region.
